Quinoa and Gouda Dish and Mixed Stone Earrings

Sesame Jasper and Snowflake Obsidian Earrings
I've never put these stones together before. It works!
Both stones have grey tones in their marking which helps them blend well. These are available at Miss Val's Creations.

Quinoa and Gouda Dish
This was a delicious and easy dish!

We started by cooking some quinoa. While that was cooking we sauteed mushrooms, spinach and sunflower seeds in olive oil. 

This was flavored with curry powder, chili powder, salt and pepper to taste.
We shredded a HUGE pile of gouda cheese and melted that in.
This made a filling meal! On the side we roasted some cauliflower on the pizza stone. Mmmm!
I hope you are all ready for the Christmas holiday if you are celebrating! Time is just flying by! Thank you for looking. ~Val


  1. Oh Val~Earrings and Gouda!!! I am heading into a blog hiatus for a couple weeks but I just had to take a moment when I saw that combination :-) Beautiful earrings and the food looks and sounds DE-licious!

  2. Hi,Val:
    Beautiful earrings and very tasty dish.
    I also fry the cauliflower,but before that simple,almost liquid pastry,like used for pancakes and put them into,then fry-they are delicious this way,with the fine sweet & sour sauce..
    All the Best to You - Merry Christmas & Happy New Year
